    Winemaker Notes

    Aromas of crisp citrus, pineapple and subtle green grass. Refreshing, with good acidity and lingering minerality on the finish.

    Pair with fresh cheeses, salads, light pastas, fish and other seafood, or sushi and sashimi.

    Anderra, South America
    Anderra Winery Image
    Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A., located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether it's the chateaux wines – the renowned Chateau Mouton Rothschild, their flagship wine, and its distinguished lieutenants, Chateau Clerc Milon and Chateau d'Armailhac – or branded wines like the famous Mouton Cadet. Baron Philippe de Rothschild has also exported its know-how beyond Bordeaux: to the Pays d'Oc with a range of varietal and Domaine de Baron'arques wines, to California with Opus One, and to Chile with Almaviva.

    Anderra has its origin in the heart of South America, at the foot of the Andes mountains, and in the extraordinary diversity of Chile's winegrowing regions. Brought to perfection by Baron Philippe de Rothschild's know-how, Anderra is an invitation to discover the authenticity and rich flavors of the Andes terroir. Baron Philippe de Rothschild's winemakers have sought to express the distinctive characteristics of this Cabernet Sauvignon by rigorously selecting and vinifying grapes from only the best parcels of the Chilean vineyard.

    Dramatic geographic and climatic changes from west to east make Chile an exciting frontier for wines of all styles. Chile’s entire western border is Pacific coastline, its center is composed of warm valleys and on its eastern border, are the soaring Andes Mountains.

    Chile’s central valleys, sheltered by the costal ranges, and in some parts climbing the eastern slopes of the Andes, remain relatively warm and dry. The conditions are ideal for producing concentrated, full-bodied, aromatic reds rich in black and red fruits. The eponymous Aconcagua Valley—hot and dry—is home to intense red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.

    The Maipo, Rapel, Curicó and Maule Valleys specialize in Cabernet and Bordeaux Blends as well as Carmenère, Chile’s unofficial signature grape.

    Chilly breezes from the Antarctic Humboldt Current allow the coastal regions of Casablanca Valley and San Antonio Valley to focus on the cool climate loving varieties, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

    Chile’s Coquimbo region in the far north, containing the Elqui and Limari Valleys, historically focused solely on Pisco production. But here the minimal rainfall, intense sunlight and chilly ocean breezes allow success with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The up-and-coming southern regions of Bio Bio and Itata in the south make excellent Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

    Spanish settlers, Juan Jufre and Diego Garcia de Cáceres, most likely brought Vitis vinifera (Europe’s wine producing vine species) to the Central Valley of Chile sometime in the 1550s. One fun fact about Chile is that its natural geographical borders have allowed it to avoid phylloxera and as a result, vines are often planted on their own rootstock rather than grafted.

    Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
